How much does it cost
The price of the procedure for stretch marks is approximately 300 dollars per session, and the number of sessions varies according to the amount of stretch marks and their size.
In this way, it is always important to make an appointment for evaluation before the session to find out how many sessions may be required and which the price. In the majority of cases it is recommended to do at least 4 sessions.
How it works the procedure for stretch marks
The gas injected during the session of carboxitherapy is the carbon dioxide which, in contact with the cells of the skin, leads to the formation of more fibroblasts that stimulate the production of collagen and fibronectin, and glycoprotein, molecules of the connective tissue,
facilitating the repair of the skin sharply and quickly.
To make the treatment, are followed by the following steps:
- Numb the skin with creams own to reduce the discomfort;
- Demarcate the area that will be treated, by dividing large areas by quadrants of up to 10 cm;
- Apply the gas directly into the stretch marks, being made approximately one injection every inch of the ridge;
The injections are made using a very fine needle, similar to those used to apply botox in the lips.
Carboxiterapia for stretch marks hurt?
